I have lived in Chagrin Falls, Ohio for for thirty years.  My paintings most often reflect the love I have for the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York, where my family has owned a summer cottage for over thirty years. As a painter and teacher, I celebrate close-up images of everyday life, and explore the effects of watercolor on a variety of paper surfaces.

Educated at Skidmore College and Kean College, I became a student of watercolor years later at the Valley Art Center, and eventually one of their instructor.

Member of the Ohio Watercolor Society.
